Hi, does anyone knows what this type of knot is called? I often see them as accessories of kimonos. I've been trying to find some info about it but no luck so far ::) [url=http://i.imgur.com/MMYXbQT.jpg][img]http://i.imgur.com/MMYXbQT.jpg[/img][/url]

Try Googling images for び、び、び. That particular one looks like a び. A sailor would admire those.

Ahh, thank you both. び really seems to be what I was looking for :D, as expected I was using the wrong terms on google. All I was getting was naval/construction related knots and... well, a lot of other adult-oriented rope ativities japan is also known for :-[
